  • Profile

    Moniek Zeegers is a postdoctoral researcher at the Research Institute of Child Development and Education (RICDE). Her research involves the question whether parenting affects DNA methylation processes in children and subsequently their stress-regulation capacity.

    Moniek has a bachelor degree in Criminology in 2012 (VU University of Amsterdam), a (clinical) Master degree in Pedagogical Sciences (2014) and Research Master degree in Child Development and Education (2015; University of Amsterdam).  She started her PhD research in July 2015 at the RICDE (finishing in 2019). This research focused on: (a) whether parents' mind-mindedness (i. e., their ability to hold in mind the thougths and feelings of their child) affects young children's socio-emotional development (e.g., attachment security, emotion regulation, social competence) and (b) whether clinical interventions that aim to improve parents' mind-mindedness lead to fewer problems in child development and adjustment.
